Chris,

 

date is ANSEI SHICHI NEN (1861) January (?), I believe, but there are two more KANJI.  

Yes, hard to read, Ansei shichi nen, kinoe sho gatsu hi (or jitsu or nichi)....Kinoe is a calendar sign.,, anyway it is sho-gatsu, so January 1861.

Regards,

If it is "Ansei 7" ("安政 七"), shouldn't it be 1860 and the matching Zodiac date "Kanoe Saru" ("庚申")?

I have some problemes to find out the smith. In Hawley are listed 3 in that period with muneshige, but none Komatsu. There is Komatsu City in Ishikawa province. But there is no Muneshige.

Any idea who this smith is?

 

Thats the blade

Uwe,

 

I thought it would be 1854 plus 7, but probably you are right.

 

Jean,

 

actually 1854 = first year Ansei, so you have to add only 6 years ;-)
